Want to know more about us? Learn about Mundo de Libros

Mundo de Libros is a unique site to travel and meet new places through reading.

This program promotes the development of reading abilities in girls and boys enrolled in grades 1 to 3. We do it by providing free access to children books in written Spanish and to our technological platform.

During the first stage, the program will be implemented in community libraries, known as Bibliotecas Digitales, in the State of Mexico, Mexico. Registration is on a first come, first served basis and space is limited. The members of Mundo de Libros will:

  • Have access to the reading corner inside the libraries,
  • Be able to loan books for free, and
  • Have access to the program platform.

WHO WE ARE?

"QUE FUNCIONA PARA EL DESARROLLO" (QFD)

QFD is a non-profit organization that unites prominent national and international academics and policy makers with the purpose of doing rigorous research that is useful and pertinent to further development.

The QFD implementation team and its collaborators want to do studies that serve in making decisions on major economic issues of the country, we believe that the application of the scientific method in measuring what programs and projects work best is our best instrument to boost economic development. In QFD, Mundo de Libros is lead by María Elena Ortega EdD, and Arturo Aguilar PhD (ITAM).

Mundo de Libros is one of the finalists of the Second Round of All Children Reading: A Grand Challenge for Development. This project is being implemented by QFD, in collaboration with Fundación Proacceso ECO. The Fundación Proacceso is a nonprofit that uses the educational benefits of technology to catalyze the social and economic development of marginalized communities in Mexico.

This project is made possible through the generous support of the All Children Reading: A Grand Challenge for Development Partners: the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), World Vision and the Australian Government. It was prepared by QFD and does not necessarily reflect the views of the All Children Reading Partners.
